This book emphasizes the key role mycorrhizae play in sustainable systems of agricultural and forest production. Includes a discussion of ectomycorrhizae that occur on several major families of trees being managed for wood products.

From the Preface:  

Most plants on Earth have a symbiotic association in their roots with soil fungi known as mycorrhizae. There is widespread agreement among plant and soil scientists that mycorrhizae are beneficial to the growth and health of plants. However, some arbuscular mycorrhizae (AM) and vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi here after collectively called VAM in this book, have fungal species and strains within a species that vary greatly in their association with plants ranging from mutualistic to parasitic. Suffice it to say, that most plants form mycorrhizae and that this association is critical to the well-being of plants, especially in natural ecosystems. Most plants have evolved with mycorrhizae and their very existence depends on the mycorrhizal association.
